    As we move through life, angels are about --- watching and protecting through events that turn and twist in our lives. If we acknowledge Jesus in our lives, we can live comfortably in his shadow.

  21. Insisting That the Gospels Are Works of Pure History Causes Problems by Max Aplin  
    Modern Western Christians often simply assume that the four Gospels are historical in every detail. However, although they are basically historical, they were never intended to be works of pure history. Insisting that they are completely historical leads to dishonest use of the Bible, encourages extremely unnatural interpretations of biblical passages, and puts people off the Christian faith.

  22. How an Idol of Jesus is Stealing All the Worship by Isaac Mwangi  
    Who are Christians worshipping? Many Christians would be taken aback or even offended if they were asked to confirm that they indeed worship the real Jesus. Yet, the apostle Paul pointed out that many believers gladly accept deceptions. Today, the situation is even worse, with Jesus the idol having taken over the lives of many believers, who unknowingly worship a Jesus born of their their own false notions - and centuries of deception.

  32. Whatever! by Pam Ford Davis  
    "When I hear a disinterested, 'whatever,' response, I am going to take it seriously."

    So who was Alexander? And what evil did he do to Paul that he had to mention it to Timothy in this letter? Could it not wait since Timothy would be coming to him? How painful was it that he even had to say "the Lord reward him according to his works"?
    We would get to know all these as we read on.
    I've come to understand that in our work with God, we could be exposed to temptations that if not overcome might lead to betrayal of one another for various 'idols'.

We also discuss the original vegetarian diet for man and animals and the seventh day (Gen. 2:1-3).

  49. Do not neglect by Cyril Almond  
    A stern command to not neglect what God has given us. So easy to do in a busy world

    Meeting the needs of the lost or hurting rarely fits neatly into our schedule. Sometimes, when we ourselves are suffering and therefore feel least able to minister, a needy person crosses our pathway. Should we ignore their needs, or look past our own in order to serve them? Jesus demonstrated sacrificial love and concern for the wellbeing of others and as his disciples we are called to emulate him.

    The first two-thirds of Part 9 are excerpts from Extended Note F, "The Use of 'Day' and the 'Seven Days' in the Creation Account of Genesis 1:1-2:3." Then we come to Gen. 1:7, 8, where God created the firmament and put the excess water on the earth above the firmament. That same water was undoubtedly poured out on the earth at the time of the flood of Noah's day.

  59. You Gave Your Word! by Steve Countryman  
    Hebrews 6:13 "When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself" God gave us His word and has kept His word. His promises are "yes" and "amen". God gave His word as a promise to mankind and God gave His Word, Jesus, as that promise fulfilled to mankind.

  64. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 7 by Karl Kemp  
    We finish the study of the Hebrew verb "badal," which means to separate, to distinguish between, etc., which is quite important for the interpretation of Genesis 1:1-2:3. This verb is used five times in this passage. Then we come to a section titled, "A Discussion Regarding Symbolic/Spiritual Language in the Bible." And finally we begin to discuss God's removing the large amounts of excess water on the earth and putting it above the firmament He makes on the second day.

    ..the small worries that take up the most space..first of all fill our lives with the larger stones of God's favour..then watch as he responds by pouring all the smaller grains of our daily needs..

  71. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 6 by Karl Kemp  
    We continue with the study on the symbolic/spiritual use of the words light, darkness, day, and night, which is very important to the interpretation of the creation account of Genesis 1:1-2:3. And we begin a study on the Hebrew verb "badal," "to separate," "to distinguish between," which is used five times in this passage. A proper understanding of this verb is quite important to the interpretation of this creation account.

  75. LESSONS FROM THE LEPER by Ikpa Onwuka  
    There are four lessons which we must learn from the Luke chapter one leper who had his healing instantly at his encounter with Jesus. He came to Jesus a leper, but left a whole man. He had his request honoured immediately. The big question is: What did he do? Or what did he not do that yielded such instantaneous result? Mind you, Jesus still lives within us today, so it's not a question of whether we see him physically as the leper saw.

  76. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 5 by Karl Kemp  
    Genesis 1:1 serves as a title for the creation account of Gen. 1:1-2:3. Genesis 1:1 does not speak of God creating all things out of nothing in the absolute beginning; the earth was created and Lucifer fell and was judged before Gen. 1:1. We also begin a study of the frequent and quite important symbolic use of the words "light" and "darkness" in the Bible here in Part 5.

  77. Peace in the Storm by stephanie reck  
    We cannot avoid strife in this world, but with God we can know perfect peace, even in turmoil. Keeping your thoughts and trust in God will keep you in peace. We can easily lose our peace, when we look at the surrounding circumstances in our lives and in the world.

  85. A Worthy Prayer by Abby Kelly  
    God doesn't need His ego stroked. He does not bend His ear to earth because we are radically devoted to Him. God bends low to hear us because of His love for us, his unwarranted, unprecedented, deadly, life-giving love.

  100. Genesis 1:1-2:3; God Creates Our World, Part 1 by Karl Kemp  
    This account of God's creation of our world in Genesis 1:1-2:3 is quite important. For one thing, we must know that God (the God of the Bible) is the Creator of all that exists, including the universe, the earth, and man. We must know that we were created by God in His image, that we are fallen beings (see Genesis chapter 3 for a start), and that we are called to repent and submit to God's very generous plan of salvation.
